Europa League Free Betting Tips and Preview (round of 16)
The Bundesliga season ended on June 27 – but the memorable Corona season 2019/20 is not over for three teams: Bayer Leverkusen, Eintracht Frankfurt, and VfL Wolfsburg lead their Europa League in August – after a six-week break Seasons continued. For the eagles, it goes to Basel, for the wolves to Donetsk and the Leverkusen compete against the Glasgow Rangers. Frankfurt and Wolfsburg are particularly under pressure, both of whom were inferior in the first knockout round. Will we see German teams in the final tournament in North Rhine-Westphalia?

There are around six weeks between the last Bundesliga matchday and the restart of the Europa League. A (too) long breather for VfL Wolfsburg – and still no comparison to the timeout of the last 16 opponents Shakhtar Donetsk. The Ukrainians have not played a competitive game since the first leg in Wolfsburg. Since March 12th! So the big question is: what will the teams be in at the beginning of August?
Let’s start with the Wolves: VfL has had a strong Bundesliga season, but suffered from the Corona compulsory break: the Werkself suffered five of their 13 defeats after the restart – the last of nine match days. That may not mean that Wolfsburg also had strong appearances, for example at Schalke (4: 1) or in Leverkusen (4: 1), but the bottom line, the team could be happy that the competition did not take advantage of the numerous mistakes. VfL ended the season in 6th place.
The fact that the end did not go any higher was mainly due to the team’s weakness at home: while the team achieved the fifth most points of all Bundesliga clubs away (30), they ended up in 14th place on the home table (19 points). Consequently, the last game of the season of the wolves, at home against Bayern, was lost (0: 4).
In Kyiv, where the team will play in the Europa League round of 16-second leg, they don’t have to worry about their home weakness. But it was a strong opponent: Shakhtar won the first leg 2-1 after Donetsk had been the more dangerous and determined team for the entire 90 minutes. The Ukrainians have dominated the domestic league for years, and in March they secured the fourth championship title in a row.
Shakhtar’s big weapon is the combinable offensive: outside of the backing four, there are almost exclusively Brazilians for Donetsk, Taison, Alan Patrick, Junior Moraes, who all impressed with their strong technology and dynamism. Already in the first leg, it became clear that Wolfsburg could not stop this power all the time. That should not change in the second leg.
We, therefore, expect a game in which Wolfsburg will make an effort but ultimately will fail because of the balancing act to keep Donetsk from scoring goals and to be successful at the same time.

In the end, it was not enough: For weeks, Bayer Leverkusen had a remote duel with local rival Gladbach for fourth place in the Bundesliga – and thus for the last available Champions League rank. However, because the Werkself made a crucial mistake – 0-2 against Hertha – they ultimately had to make do with 5th place.
In terms of the Havertz staffing, missing the premier class couldn’t be more bitter: Leverkusen already had few arguments to keep its top star anyway, now the biggest one – a regular place with a Champions League team – is now a thing of the past. It is particularly bad that, depending on the transfer time, Havertz may no longer be available for the rest of the Europa League season. It would be a bitter loss, especially with a view to the threatening opponents from the quarter-finals (Inter Milan or Genoa).
But first, the trip to Glasgow follows: There the Werkself will meet a team that has not played professional football since March 12th. That does not know the corona adversities in gaming. And that is hopelessly inferior individually. After the Leverkusen team had already won the first leg (3-1), we expect the Werkself to dominate in the second match. Because one thing is clear: this team has something to prove!
Not only did Leverkusen miss the fourth place, but the club also failed in the cup final at FC Bayern (4-2). If the Corona season 2019/20 should not finally end in a sea of disappointment, the team in the Europa League will have to do respectably. These signs should provide plenty of drive.

FC Basel vs Eintracht Frankfurt Free Betting Tips Provided by Insider Tipsters

Eintracht Frankfurt has a Bundesliga season with ups and downs. The team celebrated terrific victories, especially the 5: 1 against Bayern. But she also suffered severe bankruptcies, for example against Leverkusen (0: 4) – or the upcoming opponent Basel.
The Adler lost 0-3 in the first leg against Basel, the just result of desperate performance. Attacking the team was largely harmless, defensively it afforded two major dropouts. So it happens that the Hessians go into the second leg in St. Jakob-Park with a handsome mortgage.
At this point, FC Basel also deserves praise: The Swiss top club was well prepared against Frankfurt and much less agile than in many league games. In the domestic Super League, one or two mixed appearances ensured that the team fell behind in the race for the championship. With five games to go, the third-placed Basel players are seven points behind leaders St. Gallen.
Compared to Frankfurt, which finished the season in 9th place, the Swiss are in a comfortable situation. Even more: While the Hessians will have to make a cold start six weeks after the Bundesliga start, FCB will still be playing until the end of July. Taken together, these are enough arguments to assume that the supposed underdog will no longer give away its strong starting position.
